Sweden has participated in the Mlovision Song Contest seven times. They made their debut in 2012 with the Eurovision Song Contest winning song "Euphoria" by Swedish singer Loreen. The song competed with other five songs and won.
2012 debut Edit
In 2012, they made their debut in the contest with the Swedish singer Loreen with her song "Euphoria", which has been one of the most successful entries in the Eurovision Song Contest history. The song competed with other five entries and won the first place.
"Euphoria" received critical acclaim from most music critics. Commercially, the song was an instant success both in Sweden and in the rest of Europe. It debuted at number twelve in Loreen's home country Sweden, until reaching number one, staying there for six weeks. The song has been certified 10 times Platinum, selling 400,000 copies there.
2013 withdrawal Edit
Despite the success previous year, they withdrew from the contest next year and did not return until 2015.
2015 return Edit
In 2015, the country returned to the contest with two entries: "Don't Stop Believing" by Mariette Hansson and "Nobody Knows" by Darin. Both songs competed with another 14 more entries. Darin performed first and Hansson performed tenth. At the end of the show, Hansson received 72 points by Mlo and came 6th place, while Darin received only 11 points and finished last place.
In 2016, four entries were selected by Mlo to compete in the Mlovision Song Contest. All songs were picked up from the Melodifestivalen 2016, held in Sweden every year to choose their next entry in the Eurovision Song Contest.
Entries chosen were: "Youniverse" by Swedish singer Molly Sandén, "Put Your love on Me" by Congolese-born Swedish singer Boris René, "Bada Nakna" (translated as Swim naked) by Swedish duo Samir & Viktor, and "Rollercoaster" by female group Dolly Style.
